Customer Question
Dear DoctorSorry, here I am...
Dear DoctorSorry, here I am again :(I am staying in a hotel where towels were changed and folded. About 3 hours after the towels where changed, I used one of them after the shower. As I wiped my face, I could see a red tiny dot on the towel. It was bright red. I wiped my eyes and pimples on my face with it beforehand.
My question is this:
Is there a risk for HIV and HEP C ? (i am immuned to B)
Would after 3 hours HIV be still infecting considering the towels were folded, so maybe the dot was in the folded part with not much air hitting it. Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
